Why is there no public announcement of this? Why does the actual Canadian Mint website have no links or mentions of this project? Why are there goats and wheat on your webpage? What is this for, some digitally enabled 19th century version of Canada? What kind of goofy hoax is this?



Back in the day, people used goats for currency. Then it became wheat, then coins, then... you get the picture.

The Mint will be issuing a press release momentarily.

Government bodies move slow as all hell. Even when a specific department of the Mint authorises something, it'll have to pass through about six other departments before a blog post is signed off.

(the goats thing is a timeline of currency, seems relatively self-explanatory to me)
